    Yet another official firmware update is now available for Sony's Playstation 4 console. Just like other recently released updates, system version 6.72 appears to be yet another "stability update" with no new features added for the end-user. You know the drill: people interested in hacking & homebrew are advised against installing it. Information about what's been changed under the hood is scarce at the moment but if anything worth mentioning is found, this post will be updated with all the relevant info. As previously anticipated, the official changelog reads as follows:

    let me break it down.

    especially one manufactured by Apple.
    - iPhone is manufactured by apple

    tablet
    - didn't say iOS cause who uses a iPad in the correct mind.

    Dictionary.com
    - lmao like Dictionary.com knows anything thing about technology

    i bet Dictionary.com also has "root" for iOS

    Wikipedia > Dictionary.com

    :)

    Meh, I am not of the "Wen" variety, but I would like to know if the private exploits work on the latest firmware. Not in an effort to get it ASAP, but eventually. I wouldn't want to update to 6.72 for a quick round online only to know the exploit - if eventually released - works on 6.71 only.

    the trick has been to stay on the lowest possible firmware for longest possible.

    i stayed on low for long time i got 5.05 hack. was happy.

    but then red dead redemption 2 got released so updated to play that. was happy. end of the day we have consoles to play games.

    now I'm playing the waiting game again. I play other console i have and other PS4 games which don't require an update.

    so it is all up to you and your will power.

    You are barking at the wrong tree. Nobody knows. However, what we know that they DO have the private exploits but on the latest firmware ? No idea.

    For me, I will wait much longer if I have to. I am fine with Nintendo Switch and PC for fun-fun. They will definitely release the private exploits and they only know when. It might be next year after PS5 is release. That's highly possibile.

    Shouldn't the PS4 be like, super stable by this point? These are just a pain in the ass to install. Oh, planning on playing an online game today? Haha, not right now. Right now you have to wait 30 minutes for a "stability" update.

    Well to be fair, that's more of Nintendo's term rather than Sony's. :P

    Other than "muh fREe gAeMz", what's the advantage of jail- I mean, privilege escalation on the PS4, anyway? Is there a homebrew community on the PS4? What can you do with homebrew on the PS4?

    i haven't updated in a while and surprisingly my ps4 isnt bugging me to update, i can access the store and my games without the last 2 updates. i don't play online though, the most online i play is stuff that runs in the background like nier automata, watch dogs, and persona 5. tbh though these are a pain in the ass to install them, as i have slow internet, but they dont seem to be forced so i dont have a problem with it

    30 minutes? What slow speeds do you have that it takes 30 minutes to update the PS4's system software?

    I bet this update fixes some undiscovered bugs only Sony knew of.

    ps4 runs bsd, bsd has jails, i think i read ps4 hacks actually break out of the jails, so yeah i'd say it is a jailbreak :)
